    Hi folks, wanted to see if the considerable knowledge pool here could help advise on where to find some of the window seals for my Leer 122 75K.

    1) Exterior perimeter seal for windoors, it has a profile that allows it to be jammed into the frame on the outside and it basically holds the glass in place.

    2) Seal that holds the rear window glass and is shoved into the rear window frame. One youtube video suggests using a kind of channel glazing that's used in glass shower doors like this, but wondering if there's a more OEM/Leer/cap specific seal out there.

    3) Seal that goes on the inner part of the windoor frame (still facing outside), which mates with the windoor frame when it is closed. Meaning, the seal that is part of the windoor open/close contact but is in the stationary frame that stays on the shell and does not flip out. It goes into a channel in the window frame and then also has a bulb on the other side of the channel.

    4) Seal that goes on the inner part of the windoor frame (still facing outside), which mates with the windoor frame when it is closed. Same as 3) above but on the driver's side. For some reason the windoor frames are slightly different on the different sides--the driver's side does not have the channel that the passenger's side does and so the seal is different.

    Grateful if anyone could share any thoughts on where to find these seals as I want to replace mine with as good as possible. Thanks in advance. Also happy to dig through a catalog or webstore if anyone has an idea of who might carry these types of seals.

    Or just go to a Leer dealer. Be nice and ask for no-warranty, no questions asked bulk seals for replacement. Measure before you go and double check that you order enough (and a little extra to measure thrice, cut once).

    Any thoughts on what the best adhesive is for gluing the edge of the window into the channel glazing seal that goes around the back window? Basically, I did what the guy in the video below did but I used a cheap glue to try to keep the seal from pulling through on either side over time. Worked for a while but the back window gets hot and the adhesive just becomes goo and the seal slides around the glass after a couple months. I took it all apart again in order to re-tint the window and figured I should glue the seal on better this time.

    So, would be grateful if anyone can help with: 1) what's the best adhesive to glue the channel seal onto the edge of the glass all the way around and 2) what works best to soak an old thin seal in so that it regains some of its pliability and heft (simple green, wintergreen oil etc.)?
